This ground beef and shells meal is rich and substantial, and it's perfect for a night in the slow cooker.

It's perfect for a chilly winter night in or for a big gathering when you need to feed a lot of people.
The recipe that follows is simple and calls for just a handful of ingredients. No need to worry about leaving your visitors waiting while you brown the meat; just throw everything into your slow cooker and let it stew all day. Make sure the pasta shells don't go mushy by checking on them 30–45 minutes before the cooking time is up.
